This 4.5×50 stick made of extra maduro leaves brought a rich, thick mouth feel of typical maduro flavors. The draw was excellent with just the right amount of resistance for a smooth slow draw. The burn was very good with no issues all the way down, almost razor flat. The flavors were medium bodied and consistent all the way from beginning to end and were deep, earthy, woody, smooth, heavy flavors. The finish was fairly short and clean surprisingly! Total smoke time was about 2 hours to the nub, very impressive for a 5×50 stick. This was part of the Black Band Project and was stick C. Photography by BG Pictures.
